I own a small retail business and Robert handled a shoplifting case for me awhile back. He handled all the necessary legwork and kept me up to date with regular reports. With his help I was able to get a settlement out of court which was more than satisfactory. I highly recommend Robert.
Robert Kelly handled an auto injury case for me a couple years ago. The sequelae of the accident were out of the norm, which made my case more difficult and more work for him. I expected a relatively small settlement, but despite this I never felt like my case was unimportant to him. Mr. Kelly was really diligent and thorough in dealing with it, and always responded to inquiries from me promptly. He was very knowledgeable about my options for venue/jurisdiction, and also pursuing mediation/arbitration. I was really nervous about having to face the opposing counsel (big insurance company lawyers.) Mr. Kelly prepared me well for it; I knew what to expect from them (both bad and good) and how to handle it. He is in touch with the nuances of the real world (so I was able to set realistic expectations and understand how it all works, theory aside) and he is honest and consistent with his communication. When I had to make decisions I never felt unguided, but I also never felt pressured.
I’m not sure that anyone in a personal injury case really feels “made whole” for any amount of money in the end. Maybe that’s why they call it “settling?” When it came to making the final decision, though, I was comfortable with it. And when the money actually came through it was as expected – probably because the terms were always clear, and when considering a settlement amount I was presented with a breakdown of how that would be divided (attorney’s fees, reimbursement to my insurance for what they’d paid, etc…)
So, I highly recommend Mr. Kelly. I hope to never need to refer friends or family to him, but if I do at least they'll be in good hands.
Out of a $8,000.00 dollar settlement one year later I only recieved $1,930.00. He never contacted any of the witnesses
Robert D. Kelly worked hard for me. He is friendly and straightforward. I was consulted and kept informed every step of the way. All of the legwork and dealing with the insurance company was taken care of from the start. With his experience (over 11 years in Seattle), I felt comfortable leaving my case in his hands. I highly recommend Robert D. Kelly to anyone in need of a personal injury or dissolution lawyer.
